Our favourite beauty products obviously have the ability to help us look better, but more often than not, they are also capable of making us feel better. If you like to have a routine that makes you feel as good as you look, look no further than some of these newest products in the market.
1. Go light and easy with your base makeup
On days you feel like heading out with as little makeup as possible, a tinted moisturiser will be your best bet. Try the Estelle & Thild Biohydrate All-in-one Tinted Moisturizer (SGD63). This lightweight tinted moisturiser is certified organic, and hydrates skin while providing natural coverage. It is formulated with ingredients that can help protect skin against environmental aggressors, and gives you a natural-looking glow. It is available in two shades and retail at Sephora.
2. Protect sensitive skin
Those of us who suffer from sensitive skin would be familiar with the discomfort of dry, itchy skin. If you’re tired of this unpleasant sensation, it’s time to take things into your own hands and give your skin the help it needs. Consider the Curél Moisture Face Care Range. Fortified with ceramides and other ingredients that can help skin produce ceramides, which can help tackle dry and sensitive skin, this range of products rejuvenate your skin and strengthen it.
The range consists of everything from a cleansing gel to a lotion, but if you were to give only one product a shot, go for the Curél Intensive Moisture Cream (SGD38.80). It is designed to be gentle enough for sensitive skin and help calm and moisturise it thoroughly.
The Curél Moisture Face Care Range is available in Singapore at National Skin Centre, selected Watsons, Guardian, Unity, NTUC Fairprice & Cold Storage stores.
3. Try a delicious and healthy supplement
Skipping meals or consuming “healthy foods” that may not taste good can make you dread your weight-loss or get-healthy plan. This is why we recommend the ORBIS Petit Shake (SGD24 for a set of seven servings), a nutritional supplement that can be taken as a meal replacement.
Choose from the six new fruity flavours they have launched: Grapefruit & Lemon, Fruity Berry, Muscat & Aloe, Fresh Strawberry, White Peach and Pineapple & Mango. Simply add fresh milk or yogurt and it’s ready to be consumed.
ORBIS Petit Shake is available at all ORBIS boutiques, counters and online store from 19 May 2017.
4. Rock a bold lip look
A bold lip colour can help make any look more polished, and it is easy to get it right. If you’re looking for a non-drying lipstick with great colour payoff, the new L’Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge (SGD23.90) may be what you need. It promises to provide 10-hour of comfortable wear – thanks to the network of adhesive polymers that helps with longevity and the infusion of vitamin E to keep lips moisturised – while delivering vivid colour.
10 shades are available, and you’ll be able to find them, together with a new range of lip liners, at all Watsons, Guardian, SASA, major supermarkets and hypermarkets, and selected department stores from June.
5. Give your skin a healthy glow
While a great foundation can help create the look of flawless complexion, what you need to give your skin a healthy, dewy glow is a highlighter.
We are loving the new Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter (SGD69), which has a golden-peach hue that is universally flattering, and feels comfortable on skin in hot and humid climate. You’ll love the warm, beautiful sheen it offers, while it also deliver hydration and nourishment to your skin, thanks to the infusion of five forms of coconut and provitamin B5 in its formula.
This is available at Sephora.
6. Protect your skin comfortably
We all know that sun protection is important, but many of us refuse to wear more sunscreen or reapply it because we find the texture of sunscreen sticky and uncomfortable. If this is a concern for you, try the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence (SGD18.90), now in an improved formula.
Besides offering sun protection of SPF50+, it also leaves skin feeling cool, thanks to its light and watery texture, making it a perfect product to use in Singapore’s climate. You’ll also appreciate that it has a subtle citrus scent to make you feel even more refreshed.
It is available at all leading pharmacies, super- and hyper-markets, together with the UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel.
7. Wear a scent that brightens your day
A fresh scent can invoke the sense of happiness and brighten up our day. Try Flower by Kenzo Lumière is a variant from the popular Flower by Kenzo fragrance and is inspired by “light”. The fragrance opens with the citrusy accord of Calabrian bergamot, and then develops into the floral heart of Bulgarian rose and jasmine. It finishes with white musk to give it a comforting closure.
Flower by Kenzo Lumière is available at all department stores, in 30ml (SGD83), 50ml (SGD116), and 100ml (SGD156).
8. Give dry skin instant relief
If eczema and dry skin is a concern, give it some relief with Suu Balm. This is fortified with cooling menthol and rich ceramides to break the damaging itch-scratch cycle while helping skin to heal. The non-sticky cream can also be used to reduce heat and redness after sports, itch from insect bites, and dry skin from travel and air-conditioning.
Suu Balm is available in a 70ml tube at SGD19.90, and 350ml pump at SGD49.90. You can find it at Watsons and its website.
